A Bug Out Vehicle (BOV) is a large 4x4 vehicle that you jump into when you and your family are “Bugging Out” of urban city areas in case of Civil Unrest, Economic Collapse, Terrorist Attacks, Race Riots or Martial Law and “Head for the Hills”!
“Bugging In” or “Bugging Out”? Since I already live in “The Hills” – In the remote North Carolina Blue Ridge Mountains, I’ll be standing my ground and “Bugging In”, rather than “Bugging Out”, but that option is up to you – depending on your location and the emergency situation!
Bug Out Vehicles must be able to navigate rough terrain and in rough weather conditions – Consider using a large 4x4 SUV with a high enough ground clearance to get you through deep snow, back dirt roads, low water crossings and over fallen tree branches safely. It’s hard to imagine “Bugging Out” in a Prius.
Bug Out Vehicles must hold at least 4 people – There is strength in numbers – Don’t travel alone during a State of Emergency Declaration!
Bug Out Vehicles must be large enough to sleep in.
FJ Cruiser – Ultimate Bug Out Vehicle
Bugging Out? Used 4x4 Toyota FJ Cruiser, with a high 9.6” of ground clearance is The Ultimate Bug Out Vehicle. Toyota FJ Cruisers have a good amount of cargo capacity to carry your Emergency Survival Gear in all types of Emergency Situations. They are also long enough to sleep in.

The Toyota FJ Cruiser was sadly discontinued in 2014, making this a High Demand 4x4 Used SUV on the Used SUV Market. Just over 200,000 Toyota FJ Cruisers were sold in the U.S.A., from 2007 to 2014. The closest New Toyota vehicle to the Toyota FJ Cruiser would be the Toyota 4Runner 4x4, which shares a similar Toyota chassis and drivetrain.
